Didn't need any pointy things, so logging as a summer ascent.

Could probably have logged this as winter but didn't use crampons or tools. Nice descent.

After an afternoon at Huntly's Cave I decided to grab the route before the sun set. Had the ridge to myself in glorious evening sunshine. Descended via Fiacaill a' Choire Chais reaching the car park just as the sun sunk below the Monadhliath.
